Whoa...."In the U.S. alone there are reports of over 10,000,000 people going missing per year"
10,000,000 ??? a year? Per this info, Census
there are U.S. 303,792,008, in thirty years those would be gone (not counting births to replace those missing, nor imigrants)
Honestly, don´t you think we would notice such a HUGE decline in population
Just seems high to me..
Edit for more info
"By the end of 2005, there were 109,531 active missing person records according to the US Department of Justice. Children under the age of 18 account
for 58,081 (53.03%) of the records and 11,868 (10.84%) were for young adults between the ages of 18 and 20.
During 2005, 834,536 entries were made into the National Crime Information Center's missing person file, which was an increase of 0.51% from the
830,325 entered in 2004. Missing Person records that were cleared or canceled during the same period totaled 844,838. The reasons for these removals
include: a law enforcement agency located the subject, the individual returned home, or the record had to be removed by the entering agency due to a
determination that the record is invalid"
As the below poster stated, even 500000 is high....
